, but we have made some very clear red lines there. >> people will say this is very reminiscent of iraq. you have a bad guy who is believed to be in the process of either developing or has wmd. we know what happened with iraq, that that intelligence was flawed. can america, can the world, risk another flawed military action if it turns out ahmadinejad is actually telling the truth? >> first of all, it's very different from iraq. i personally never saw any intelligence that was at all persuasive on the nuclear issue. i wanted the inspectors to go in there for a simple reason. when the first gulf war was over, we began an accounting of all of saddam's weapons of mass destruction, which mostly consisted of chemical warheads and chemical and biological agents. in 1998, when he kicked the inspectors out, there were two biological agents and two chemical agents, a substantial quantity unaccounted for. we bombed, the u.s. and uk. after 9/11, i thought it was important for the inspectors to go in, try to find out whether we had destroyed that or not. we later learned when he was deposed that it

they bombed the iraq reactor in iraq and stopped for a time the iraqi program. they spread the program out and brought in russian scientists in the sciences from scientist from other countries as well and very sophisticated effort. they have adapted for long-term -- to carry atomic devices. they are very determined to become an atomic power and it's important to remember what atomic powers do. they don't detonate atomic vons. they threaten to do so and extract concessions with those threats and when i talk to the american officials in saudi arabia and other nearby air countries they are equally terrified of the israelis. they know what kind of concessions the persians are going to demand and they're not going to be small in ambition. >> host: frightening. let's move onto fast and furious where the inspector general's report, eric holder and the president talked about waiting for word on what actually happened in the fast and furious operation yet you see this as another example of deficiencies in obama's leadership in particular dealing with a subordinate in this case the attorney general

the spokespersons, we're leaving iraq, we're leaving afghanistan, we're leaving the area, the people in the area are having to adjust and they believe the united states is weak and they are taking appropriate action. bill: also over the weekend congressman mike rogers, chairman of the house intelligence committee and former fbi agent echoed that sentiment. >> the countries of middle east believe there is a disengagement policy by the united states and that lack of leadership there or at least clarity on what our position is causing problems. i, if we all decide to rally around the video as the problem we're going to make a serious mistake and we're going to make i think diplomatic mistakes as we move forward if we think that is the only reason people are showing up at our embassy to conduct acts violence. bill: the romney campaign says the obama administration is failing to throughout that part of the world. heather: there is more trouble brewing between israel and iran as a nightmare scenario could be coming close to reality. prime minister benjamin netanyahu says the iran will be the on the br

the approach in iraq was very different for troops than the approach in afghanistan where you deal with the local elders. how do we convince them we don't share those sentments? that we don't categorize the muslim people in that way? >> well, jamie, i think we can say it and our government has been saying it. we can disavow these things but we also have to be true to our values. we believe in freedom of speech. we believe in freedom of religion. jamie i would caution against making this too much about oust. even though the spark for this may have been this video the actual grievances are much deeper and i think that in fact it is not just about us. look, the other parties have been targeted here too. religious minorities. the former regimes, liberal activists have been targeted over past many months in these places. it is a mistake to make this about us and these countries. it is not all about the united states here. jamie: can you or can you not change the minds of people involved in these protests in huge numbers? >> i think you can over time, frankly. the problem here again you

million people. it's had a tremendous amount of influence in lebanon, afghanistan and iraq and in some cases, our interests are actually mutual with the united states and iran, so i think it is an important country without -- i think they've had a problem for many, many years with the west. particularly with the united states. where they believe, whether it's true or not, but they believe that the u.s. is out to get them. out to destroy the regime and overthrow the regime. even this recent delisting of the opposition group that was in iraq, they claim is another example of the u.s. only interested in changing the regime. we have many, many issues between the u.s. and iran over the 30 years, the nuclear age has gotten to the point now where we have harsh, harsh sanctions hurting the people, the economy, everyone. probably not the regime so much. >> not as tough as they should, at least from our reporting. if you were really trying to shut things down. >> well, they're not that lenient. i think people find a way to get around. >> leaky. >> sorry. but i think that right now, with these sa

, including kurds in syria as there are in iraq and iran and turkey, you have a potential situation where you get increased cross water flows of militant groups seeking to have some changes on the borders as well. the last thing the united states wants is for syria to stabilize itself and to destabilize a country that we helped at such great expense in american lives and treasure to put back together after the fall of sadaam hussein. host: call is on the phone on the democratic line. caller: i am surprised at the number of americans and the number of c-span viewers who are not supporters of the united nations. i'm a big supporter. i would like to give an example. the united nations charter and the provisions that could have stopped hitler and world war ii and if we had the united nations in the 1930's. when hitler and his troops marched back into the rhineland, the united nations security council could have applied economic sanctions which would have stopped sweden from selling iron ore to germany. it would have stopped romania from selling oil to hitler. without those, hitler never would hav

an uptick of al qaeda activity in that area. also in iraq for that matter. particularly in the benghazi area, which hasn't fully yet come under control of the central libyan government. libyan government leaders were very, very quick to condemn what happened, the killing, the death of ambassador stevens, and the other three american diplomats. called it cowardly and criminal, and said that they would be hunted down. as you know, the united states has said, president, secretary of state, that these killers will be brought to justice. very important to know that this is not a sort of anti-americanism all over libya that's at work. it's a small group of militants and extremists. the same thing happened apparently in egypt. >> explain to us because this was a big question that we had earlier this morning before learning the new information about the ambassador ms group. perhaps not targeting him, but explain what was that about, the protests, the outrage in libya and egypt against this film, this american film that was critical of the prophet muhammad? >> well, suzanne, you know, the problem is
